This was taken on my friend's farm in Ontario. The low light in the barn gave this white sheep an interesting sort of glow.

This photo almost has a negative look to it! The colors on the face of the sheep look almost like a negative image. I agree that the colors are very eerie! But the problem is very obvious. The color of the ear tag clashes with the pink of the nose! If you don't believe me, just watch Clinton and Stacey on TLC's "What Not to Wear" tonight!

Surely I digress too much.

My only complaint on this photo is the composition. There is too much empty space on the right side. I would like to see more of the sheep.

I don't think Stacy and Clint would recommened a fly on the nose, either! HA. I guess I tend to do my portraits off center. I think it's because I like the negative spaces that appear.

LOL...off she goes to Carmindy...she'll balance out that color of the nose to match up with that stylish tag! She works wonders! :G

The face of the sheep is nice and sharp. Was it raining? It almost looks as though the sheep has some water drops on it which may account for the glow you mentioned as the light shone through it. I do notice some highlights in the hay/grass due to rain or morning dew....

Ha, you're funny SB and Cal - funny thing is that this photo was taken inside the sheep barn - no rainy or sunny sky overhead, just a roof. I can't really explain the unusual light!

I understand and appreciate your care for off center portraits. But, don't you also think that, at least you shouln't deprive the cute sheep of the edge of its right ear??
Other than this, I enjoyed the image with the typical curious portrait of a sheep :-) Thanks for sharing, tigerwings.

Yes, the sheep should have his ear, but he didn't listen when I said "don't move"!!

I like the shot and composition but I think the problem with it is too much sharpening. This is the kind of effect you get with Picasa, which does not allow any control over the amount of sharpening added to a picture.

Picasa,
Is that a photo editing program?

Yep. Obviously you did not use it. Haveyou sharpened this photo at all? Perhaps it's my monitor playing tricks on me!
